How to Prevent (and Treat) Tick Bites This Summer Naturally 

By Dr. Cass Ingram

There's a tiny, would-be assassin hiding in America's fields and woodlands that goes by the name of ioxides scapularis, but is more commonly known as the black-legged deer tick.

A single bite from this creature can destroy your life - and if untreated, may even kill you. 

"The disease caused by this tiny biting insect is called, Lyme disease, and it's one of the most dreaded and destructive diseases known," said medicinal spice expert and health researcher Dr. Cass Ingram, author of "The Lyme Disease Cure."


With a minimum of some 400,000 Americans diagnosed with this disease every year, and with lockdowns being lifted in many parts of the country, those with Lyme disease need to understand why they are at a heightened level of risk and how to avoid being adversely impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, says Dr. Cass Ingram, a Lyme disease survivor who developed his own successful plant-based treatment protocol which he details in his book, The Lyme Disease Cure.


Patients who have Lyme disease typically have a hyperactive immune system that is in a state of perpetual inflammation. This factor makes these individuals more at risk for developing severe illness.

As tick season ramps up this year, we have to be very vigilant, more so than any other year, so that we prevent Lyme disease from developing.




Wear the lightest-colored clothes possible, preferably white or off-white. White is the best, since the tiny tick nymphs, which are black, can be seen more readily. Larger ticks can be easily seen against such a background.


Socks are pulled over the pant legs. The socks should be white.


Spray shoes, socks, and legs with a natural, potent tick repellent.


Check clothes often for evidence of crawling, climbing ticks.


Wear a hat to prevent ticks from falling from tall grass or trees onto the head.


Be sensitive, and be aware. Have a high awareness of entities crawling on the body or in the hair. If any such sensations occur, check the body immediately.  


Upon arriving home or when in a secure place, strip down immediately; place all clothing in a plastic bag. Inspect the body fully for ticks. 

The head and neck should be carefully inspected. The hair should

be thoroughly brushed and/or combed all the way down to the scalp. After any wilderness adventure take a shower and scrub the skin 



Any tick bite, if discovered, should be treated topically. The tick itself, along with the bite area, should be saturated with the oil of wild oregano to attain constant contact, which is ideal to destroy any residual tick-related germs and the consequential local inflammation. That constant contact can also be achieved by saturating a bandage or a piece of cotton and once the tick is removed taping it against the region. This can then be changed every 12 or 24 hours and continued until all infection and inflammation is eradicated. 



Wild spices in the form of oil of oregano will literally burn away the protective exterior membranes (biofilm) of viruses and pathogens transmitted by an infected tick.   Many types of germ-killing spices are reviewed in the book, and readers are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the healing properties and uses of each.   Some of the spices used by Dr. Ingram to cure his own Lyme infection included:


  • Oil of wild oregano (P73)

  • Multiple spices - dried essential oil complex consisting of oils of wild oregano and sage, cumin, and cinnamon

  • Juice of wild oregano


Dr. Cass Ingram is the foremost expert in medicinal herbs and spices.  He received a B.S. in biology and chemistry from the University of Northern Iowa (1979) and a D.O. from the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Des Moines, IA (1984). He has written 24 books on natural healing and has been an invited guest on hundreds of radio and television programs across North America and the UK
